Re: Anything and Everything

Do not enable this man! As a representative of "Hoarders Anonymous" I can say that he is in the last stages of being a hoarder and is about to reach bottom, you will not be helping him if you send him loose women, cold beer, etc... only prolonging his agony and debilitation. Instead make a donation to S/V Rose permanent round the world fund.

Finally, I must say due to DOJ's willing to step out, I have discovered a tiny character flaw of my own. You see, although I gave way almost everything I own to him for FREE, I have unexpectedly found myself expecting a small token of his appreciation in return. I have been logging on every day waiting to get a "thank-you" note from DOJ - just a small one along the likes of "thanks Wot" or some such. Even if he had sent me his now defunct and totally useless goat but nothing has been forthcoming - but I can't blame DOJ, he never promised such, just a failing on my part. Callous of me isn't it.
He is too busy to be sending thank-you notes. Your ex is obviously keeping him occupied 24/7 .

as long as possible.
In my business model that approach also works - it's a "who you know" thing .

Funnily enough I was once kinda kidnapped for a short while. I say kinda because they had uniforms - but no paperwork was involved. To be fair, they had a point (to know DOJ in person is not neccessarily to love him ).

For legal reasons lets call that an internet story .

I'll send you my ex-wife. You'll have to take over the payments though...

Wotname has already tried that. DOJ apparently sent her back COD, so it may not be such a good idea attempting this again .

Just bumping the thread as competition means DOJ needs all the help he can.

Re: Anything and Everything

I would like to make a proposal! And I think we would all feel good about it, I like where DOJ is going with this, About giving and receiving! And Free! And the whole "me, me, me thing". And he's right cash is good, but what's better? It's called credit and it comes in different forms and is fairly easy for you to obtain.
Imagine how your going to feel when you go into your local boat chandlery and purchase a gift card in my name (yes me), the amount doesn't matter. I'm really doing you all a favor you see I want/need NEW stuff not used! I don't want you digging around the garage looking for that old anchor, compass or Garmin 740s (s stands for sonar), hell you could hurt you back. I care about you. Plus in todays economy dollars are worth nothing (ask the Chinese). So in the spirit of giving think credit. Also how much beer do I have to consume in comparison to say "whiskey". Again thats me thinking about you! Now as far as babes are concerned I'm married and as long as the wife doesn't fin
